oooohh.. I didn't know you had multiple bettas in there. Now that I absolutely don't advise. It may be ok today but majority of the time they do stress each other to the point of disease if not finally fighting. They do not like each other and is a stocking they'd never have chosen for themselves even if you don't see physical aggression ...as thats the last stage of aggression and there are many far more subtle stages of aggression .

I only have two young Bettas in there. I am new to some Cichlids, but not all fish! I know how to handle the fish I have, I NEVER buy a fish without research.

My biggest dream is to someday have Water Sprite!

Oh that I can tell lol. I can absolutely hear in your posting style you are experienced and knowledgeable .. I hope you didn't think I implied otherwise! Sadly the female bettas being ok together myth is wide spread to the point of even many on here claim it's ok. It's better that you have them in a larger tank.. That is a plus however over time stress of living together most likely will take a toll on their health. Do you plan to separate once they're older?

You're really going to enjoy your angel ... At the point when they're about the size of a quarter(their body) they start to speed up their growth.
You should share pics! Cichlids are like betas in the fact that they are attention hounds lol... they usually are easy to photograph .. Mine always photo bomb anytime I try to get a pic of any other tank mate lol

I actually never intend to keep my females together (when buying them I figure I'll eventually have to separate them), it's just the easiest thing to do while I'm waiting for new tank space to open up. I actually plan on getting one of those National Geographic 2.5 gallon tanks, my cousin has one and I love it! It would be better to keep my Crowntail girl In my community, right? I've heard that their fins are lighter, which will help because I have 2 filters!

As far as I know he/she is a Golden Veil Tail, don't know the gender, or if the color is true, so any info on he/she is greatly appreciated!

Oh that's exactly as my golden angel looked at that size . Mine has the most impressive fins now as he's gotten bigger as will yours ! I think the ventral split thing is genetic as mine is exactly the same as well as another similarly colored one who's got black as well . He's the size of my palm not including gigantic fins (that a female angel recently bit off the majority if his lower fins.. Look.. See how similar ours are! (Telling size from this picture is tricky.. He's large I promise .. That's a 225g tank )
